Welcome to Adra


The delightful holiday resort town of Adra, the western-most coastal town in the province of Almeria, is surrounded by magnificent beaches and is rich in history, having been founded in the 8th century. Adra remains a working fishing harbour and early-rising visitors enjoy the daily dawn fish auctions and dining out at the many tempting seafood restaurants.

The clean, neat town centre with its many squares and parks is split by the attractive Paseo de Natalio Rivas promenade. Sights to see include the Church of the Immaculate Conception, the Partridge Tower (which houses the tourist office), an historic restored mill and the town's interesting museum. Adra boasts the Poniente blue flag beach among its stretches of beautiful sandy shore, attracting hundreds of holidaymakers each year.
